Atmel Corp. unveiled a new area scan CMOS camera family designed for industrial machine-vision applications. This new family, under the name of ATMOS, is a fast CMOS area scan camera able to work in 8-, 10- or 12 bits and offers an excellent signal to noise ratio, explained the company. Specific CommCam software, also developed by Atmel, renders camera configuration easy.

The ATMOS 1M30 and 1M60 are the first two members of the new CMOS matrix camera family. They are composed of a 1.3 million pixels CMOS sensor, featuring high sensitivity even at maximal speed. The region of interest allows the end-user to implement infinite resolutions and to increase frame rate: with a 48fps full resolution at 1.3M, 60fps at 1M and 180fps in VGA format for the 1M60 model (half-speed for the 1M30). In addition, the CMOS camera with its CameraLink interface is suitable for those wanting to upgrade from analog to digital modes. The camera can be uploaded remotely. Atmel disclosed that other CameraLink interfaces will be added with the next ATMOS models.

The two new ATMOS cameras are delivered in a 44mm? section design with a C-mount adapter. "With all its features, ATMOS 1M series offers an exciting alternative to current available products. They offer excellent price-to-quality," said Christophe Robinet, Camera Marketing Manager of Atmel's Professional Imaging. "Our plan is to release higher resolution versions shortly."

Both the ATMOS 1M30 and 1M60 will enter production phase this month (April 2005), with pricing of $2,050 and $2,640 respectively for a quantity of 100 pieces.
